Flourishing – Strengthened

While hiking on a rugged mountain trail, a man came upon a beautiful stone that stood out from all the rest. It seemed to radiate light, unlike all the other plain, gray rocks. He took the stone home, and put it in a curio cabinet for display. As time went on though, he noticed the stone had lost its luster, becoming dull and boring. As it was no longer special to him, he went to throw it away – but stopped as he noticed the kitchen’s sunlight filled it once again with radiant, glowing color. The light gave the stone its ability to reflect the glory of nature – it had no strength to “come alive” and glow on its own. How are we like this stone? What makes us radiant and gives us the strength to shine in our lives?
